Voluntary Withdrawal from Accreditation
Nurse Residency Programs
The pursuit of reaccreditation is a voluntary process. An institution that seeks reaccreditation of its residency program is permitted to withdraw from these processes at any time. Upon receiving written notification from an institution of its accredited program’s intent to withdraw from the accreditation process, the Commission will notify the institutional accrediting agency and the public of said action. An institution that voluntarily withdraws its accreditation may reapply for accreditation no sooner than 6 months following the withdrawal. If a program allows its accreditation to lapse, this is considered the same as voluntary withdrawal from accreditation.
